About the facility

In the SEM SRF we have long-standing expertise in the development and application of electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) to materials’ research. We collaborate with national and international researchers and industrial partners on electron microscopy topics in engineering, physical sciences, Earth and environmental sciences, and health and biosciences.

Our team

Our team

Alongside expertise in EBSD in the SEM, our team of skilled scientists offers expertise in FIB (focused ion beam) SEM and TEM (transmission electron microscopy).


Our research

We are working to connect EBSD and TKD (transmission Kikuchi diffraction) with EDS (X-ray spectroscopy), CL (cathodoluminescence) and other state-of-the-art microscopy techniques using integrated workflows.

We are proud to be a LEAF Bronze Award Laboratory - recognising our commitments to laboratory sustainability and efficiency.
